Profiles of Innovative State Programs

Many different state agencies play a role in addressing indoor environmental quality. Health, education, labor, building services, and business regulation are some of the departments that have jurisdiction over one or more building type or practice. This authority may include implementing laws and regulations that establish requirements for building owners. It also may include carrying out research, technical assistance, and education programs to promote best practices.

This page profiles innovative informational resources developed by state agencies as part of their ongoing efforts to protect and improve indoor environmental quality and promote more sustainable building practices.
